Part-Time JD Program

Denver Law’s part-time program is one of the oldest in the country. Throughout our history, innovations in teaching and new understandings about learning have played a central role in our curriculum delivery. The technology available to us today allows for a convenient, but no less effective, method of instruction that provides access to legal education for people with professional and personal commitments that make the traditional full-time program unworkable.
